Tonight at 7pm, the group reading the memoir of Robert Murray M’Cheyne will meet in the conference room here at First. Extra copies of the book are available, so feel free to join us even if you’ve missed the first few gatherings. You’ll love the fellowship around God’s grace through this brother’s life.

Operation Christmas Child

We continue collecting for needy children around the globe. This Sunday is Clean & Neat Sunday. Bring personal items for personal hygiene: a bar of soap and a washcloth, a comb, and toothbrushes, to name a few. Also bring small but necessary clothing items: socks, T-shirts, hair clips and bows. The packing party is coming soon: Saturday, November 22 at noon. Make your plans to be there!

Christmas with the Gettys
​Payment is due Sunday for the tickets to the Getty concert at Carnegie Hall. Please make your checks out to First Baptist ($32 per ticket) and give your payment to Gordon.

New Members Class

All who are interested in learning more about the First Baptist Church in the City of New York are invited to join us around 9.30am in Haldeman Chapel. There is no obligation to join the church if you attend. Please join us this week as Matthew leads us in a study of life together as a community.

Sunday’s Worship Service

The congregational songs this week are as follows. (If you don’t know a song, click its title and you’ll be taken to a video or audio rendition.)

The sermon text will be Isaiah 2.

Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl
This study of N. D. Wilson’s book will resume Sunday evening at 6pm at the Peterson’s apartment. Come learn how the gospel shapes the way we look at our world, and our place in this world. You’re invited even if you haven’t been able to attend an earlier meeting. Contact Nick for more information.
